In my reading of the proposal, not-tier-1 arches will receive appropriate
space and resources off the main mirror network if they can demonstrate
viability (working buildd, basic unix functionality, compiled 50%, 5
developers, 50 users) and DFSG-ness (freely usable, unmodified Debian
source). As far as I can see all current official Debian arches fulfill these
criteria. For the in-development arches like k*bsd with a handful of
developers and a extremly small userbase other solutions are already used.
